Ulysses Dove | Choreographer, Bad Blood | LVCDT Spring Concert Season

Bad Blood

In Bad Blood, emotional passion and kinetic, athletic energy encapsulate the powerful yet extremely tender war between the sexes, asking the question “can we be a duo and an individual at the same time?” Ulysses Dove has been hailed as one of the most exciting choreographers to emerge in the latter half of the twentieth century, renowned for a style that merged the influences of his choreographic mentors, Alvin Ailey and Merce Cunningham.


Nicholas Villeneuve | Choreographer, To The Last Grain | LVCDT  Spring Concert Season

To The Last Grain

Nicholas Villeneuve is a director from the New York-based company Ballet Hispanico, which recently received an invitation from President Obama to perform at the White House. This world premiere ballet is based on the ancient beliefs of India’s Akshantulu, in which rice is used to bless the young and foster a healthy, peaceful and happy life. Nicholas’ new work for LVCDT will capture an abstract look into this sacred and beautiful tradition.
